Over-holing - (insert scream here)!
Is it just me?
Am I secretly OCD?
I was in a rush today and was quickly printing my weekly work schedule in colour and then grabbed my hole punch to put it into my A5 planner ready for a busy week.
I lined up the page.
Eye-balled the position so it was even on both sides.
Quickly punched the paper.
Put back the punch and opened the rings.
The holes did not match!
I had left the punch in Pocket-sized ring space!
No time to reprint the pages!
Grabbed the punch
Yanked it back to A5 hole spaces.
Punched in the right holes.
Flung the paper into my binder.
Walked off muttering.
Spent the best part of the day staring at the redundant holes.
It irritates me.
But it does.
Spent the rest of the day deliberating on whether to reprint the page and re-punch.
It just doesn't look right.
Realistically, the page works just as well.
....but it will stare at me for the rest of the week.
First World problem.
UPDATE: It's Friday and I suffered through the week with the redundant holes still there. I made it! Honestly, I just had to overcome my irritation. High-Five for me! But next week I will DOUBLE CHECK before I punch. Lesson learned. And, (if you excuse the wordplay) it was better than redoing the (w)hole thing again!
